Sciatica is the back pain that results from pressed sciatic nerves. It is a common problem experienced by people with a herniated or bulging disc problem or spinal narrowing which presses the nerve. Sciatic pain radiates along the sciatic nerve path which moves from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and moves down to each leg. This pain generally affects just one side of the body.

Sciatic pain is more commonly prevalent in middle-aged people and most likely to occur between 40-50 years of age. According to some research, it affects approximately 43% population at some point in life. Some injury or accident do not directly cause it; instead, it develops over time.
Majority of people suffering from sciatica pain improve with non-surgical sciatica interventions, in a few weeks or months. While for a few others, the pain due to a pinched nerve can become severe and incapacitating.

Causes

The sciatic nerve is the spinal nerve that moves from the lower back to hips and buttocks. When the bulging or herniated disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerves in the spine, it swells the nerves. This causes pain in the lower part of the body.

Symptoms

The sciatic pain typically originates in the lower back and travels down in one or both legs. The frequency or intensity of pain may fluctuate, or it may remain constant. The compression of the sciatic nerve causes painful symptoms, including

  • The concentration of pain in one side of the lower back
  • Constant pain in just one side of the lower back
  • Sharp and shooting pain along the path of the sciatic nerve
  • Pain that becomes worse while sitting
  • Difficulty in making leg or foot movement
  • Radiating pain that moves down the leg, foot, and toes
  • Numbness, tingling or burning in legs
  • Difficulty in standing and breathing
  • Symptoms of a panic attack

The sciatic pain intensity may vary from becoming infrequent and disturbing to constant and debilitating. Symptoms of sciatic pain are generally dependent on the pinched nerves position.
